My husband loves a New York Strip steak and very often he is disappointed by the quality when he one. His New York Strip at Theo's was perfection! I always get a filet and I ordered the bearnaise sauce with it. My filet was perfect and their bearnaise was equally perfect. The staff was friendly and well informed. We enjoyed our meal immensely!

Everything was excellent form ht moment the hostess greeted us with a smile and the Bartender who quickly got us a round of drinks prior to being seated. Melanie was an Excellent Server, she was attentive, pleasant and spot on! The Filet Mignon I had was one of the best ever, it rivaled or beat the quality at some of the best steak houses in the biggest cities, what a treat in our little town of St. Michaels. Highly recommend to anyone visiting !

I went to Theo's with some friends, and had a great time! The bartender, Mary, greeted me with a smile and was quick to take my drink order and serve a glass of wine. Our waiter, Shane, did a great job and General Manager, Audry, is always a delight!

Thank you for a wonderful experience and fantastic food! We will be back!

Great venue for my husband’s birthday, from the shrimp grilled at the table on a Himalayan salt block, to the local oysters on the half shell, to the NY strip steak and soy glazed salmon, to the birthday cheesecake on the house! Great service, great cocktail and wine list. We also enjoyed the soft pretzels with honey mustard which were part of the bread basket.

Who wouldn't love Theo's? From a hostess with the mostest, to a vigilant waitstaff and servers with opinions, it really doesn't get better. A fun, accessible, friendly and easy menu that has something for everyone, with food that's properly cooked and attractively presented, along with scalable choices from small plates to entrees, this is THE place to enjoy with friends, guests or family. Wine and drink selections aplenty and a bar area second to none in St. Michaels. Bravo, kudos and all that jazz....thanks, we had a wonderful evening.

We’ve been to Theo’s many times, but this was the first time I didn’t have steak. They served the best seared ahi dinner I’ve had, perfectly rare, with bok choy seasoned perfectly. Two surprises on the dish; pickled carrot and sesame croquettes(filled with a miso red bean paste) are now my favorite pairing! I wanted to ask for more croquettes and a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert, they were amazing! We’ll be back. . .

Wonderful dining experience. We each had a whiskey sour cocktail before dinner, which was both beautiful and delicious. The baked oysters are to die for! Hubby had the lamb chop special would looked amazing and I had the Filet Mignon with the red wine demi sauce. Filet was soo tender and cooked perfectly medium rare. Cannot forget to mention the bread basket...absolutely delicious assortment of baked crisps, rolls and pretzel sticks. Absolutely mouthwatering. Everything was amazing. Service was impeccable. Will definitely return when coming back to Saint Michael's.

Very cute setting! Gorgeous vintage home with fireplace and great wood floors . Menu sounded great but execution left much to be desired. Hostess was awesome..seated us right away..but all down hill from there. Waitress took bev orders and we waited. First pour for my husband barely any Blantons in the glass..second pour came as a double. Never cleated our empties. Food was exessively greasy..even the crabcakes..not worth the money..well head back to 208 for our next nice dinner.

Downstairs was very loud so I was pleasantly surprised to find out there was "upstairs" seating! The ambiance upstairs was amazing with different types of comfortable seating arrangement and a fireplace. We happened to go while it was still "happy hour" and they offered special prices on wine and special appetizers....what a DEAL (4:30-6:30). Our food was amazing (tempura shrimp, salt block tenderloin apps, crab cakes, strip steak and frites, salads). Everything was so good, we decided we'd be missing out if we didn't try dessert (apple pie a la mode and vanilla bean cheesecake with strawberries). We'll definitely be back. Servers were attentive, knowledgable, and worked together as a team helping each other out!!!

Very happy with our Valentine's Day dinner, especially when hostess seated us in front of the fireplace on a cold night. Waitstaff service was professional and pleasant. As pescatarians, we were initially hesitant about a steakhouse, but were pleasantly surprised the number of vegetarian/pescatarian options. I had the Quinoa Bowl and my valentine had the Ahi Tuna. On the downside, we both felt the veggies would've been better served if their flavors given a chance to fend for themselves, by serving them with LESS of the miso/soy emulsion.

First the food was wonderful. Himalayan Salt Block Chimchurri Shrimp appetizer had great flavors.
Our server Shane was courteous and friendly. The atmosphere was great, we had reservations and I had ask to be kept away from doors as my wife is haha cold. Seated near the fireplace added to our experience.
I had the New York Strip with the mushrooms. (An upcharge from offered potatoes or creamed spinach.)
My steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. I had kept some of the childbirth sauce to use with my steak but hardly touched it. My wife had the Theos Burger well done, cheese and bacon. She raved about it. So tasteful and cooked perfectly to her liking. Will be having dinner here our next visit to St Michaels!

We come to Theo’s every year for my husband’s birthday, and it is usually outstanding. However, last night, not so much. The service, which is usually incredibly attentive, was bad; slow; plates weren’t cleared promptly, our food didn’t arrive all at once and two of us didn’t have utensils when it did, our wine hadn’t been served with enough time to breathe before our meal arrived, and one of our side dishes was undercooked, and it appeared that the server knew it, as she didn’t seem at all surprised when we sent it back.

In short, it was a terribly disappointing experience, especially for one that we only have once a year..

Served a butt of a turkey round.
Pointed end served down the plate while the wide chunk flat facing up while lying on the side.
Was gross looking display while served with one nice slice of white turkey.
Overall presentation was awful.
Looked as just thrown on the plate .
Beans,stuffing,lump of turkey butt, dressing so small buried under the mixed mess next cranberry.
A bad day for the kitchen when previous dining there has been very good.

We always love Theo's. It's our go to place when we have out of town guests, as well as a place we love when it's just us. The food is always excellent - steaks are perfectly prepared and sides are always well done (we really really love the fries).

Service is wonderful, whole vibe is perfect. If you are in St Michaels, be sure to eat at Theo's.
